It’s Monday again. Hope you all had a great start to your week.
I had a taste for some juice this morning, so I whipped up a glassful in my Breville Juice Fountain. I juiced about 1/2 a cantaloupe, 2 kiwi, 1 apple, and 2 stalks celery. Hit the spot! I enjoyed that with another bagel spread with the Herbed Cream “Cheese”.
Lunch was leftovers. I usually always make more than enough dinner so we can get a few lunches out of them during the week too. It makes lunchtime much less stressful when I know I can just pull something out of the fridge and nuke it. Today, I reheated a small piece of the Veggie Lasagna from the other night. I was still hungry after that so I also had 1/2 of a Tempeh Reuben Sandwich.
Another delicious dinner! Portabella Mushroom Fajitas. The marinade I used was from More Peas and Thank You by Sarah Matheny. I used a variety of veggies, marinaded them for about an hour, then roasted them in a 400 degree oven for about 20-30 minutes. Layered the veggies on a Whole Wheat Tortilla, topped with raw shredded red cabbage and avocado slices and served it all up next to a cherry tomato and cucumber salad.
Fajitas (this made a lot…enough for 4 w/ leftovers)
2 red bell peppers
2 yellow bell pepper
2 green bell peppers
1 large zucchini
1 package baby portabella mushrooms
1 large yellow onion
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp vegan soy sauce (or Braggs Liquid Aminos)
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp liquid smoke
1 tbsp mince garlic
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
Whisk all together, pour over veggies and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Cherry Tomato and Cucumber Salad
2 medium cucumbers
1 pint cherry tomatoes
2-3 tbsp red wine vinegar (I really like vinegar, so use less if you don’t love it)
1 tbsp EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
Several shakes of dried dill (fresh would be better, but I forget to plant it this year)
Mix all together and refrigerate until serving.
100 jumping jacks
Various squats, leg kicks, crunches, calf raises, etc…about 10 minutes worth while M was dancing and pretending to exercise as well.
